Ravens troll Nick Bosa in response to Deebo Samuel mocking Lamar Jackson

The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 on a field goal as time expired Sunday, Dec. 1, the second loss for the 49ers this season.

The combination of driving rain, a stiff wind and San Francisco's rugged defense was hard for Jackson to handle. Jackson finished 14 of 24 (61 percent) and 105 yards. But, the Ravens made him a non-factor in the passing game. Jackson was still angry about how poorly he threw some passes because of the weather.

"I can't wait for that opportunity", Kittle said. Every time the Niners got some momentum, the Ravens wrested it away and vice versa.

But when it counted most on Baltimore's final drive, Jackson delivered.

Jackson knew that after he had done his job, Tucker would do his part.

"This is the National Football League, so each and every game, you're going to go in prepared, ready for a dogfight", Lamar Jackson said. "I was mad the whole time".

Tucker's game-winner put the finishing touches on a game that most 49ers described as having a postseason atmosphere.

"That's the guy you want in that situation", coach John Harbaugh said.

There's a certain responsibility you have when you get on a roll like this. "I thought that we made good adjustments as a team". Doncic was at his best on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) against the Suns, controlling every aspect of the game.

If you don't already have one, a great way to watch a few games for free this season - including every Sunday Night Football game - is by purchasing an HD antennae. Richard Sherman noted something about Jackson - the quarterback has good judgment. He can win a game and set some records with both. "They didn't try to run too much up the middle, because they know we've got some big dudes in the middle".

Mostert broke a 40-yard touchdown run in the first half and found space to rip off big gains repeatedly on his way to a career-high 146 yards on 19 carries, an average of 7.7 per attempt. San Francisco (10-2) lost for the second time in its last four games after an 8-0 start.

The Niners tied the game at 17 on a third-quarter field goal by Gould, which came after a fourth-down conversion via a pass interference penalty on the Ravens. Warner also had another crucial PBU in the fourth quarter on 4th-and-4. Jackson ran off right guard for 3 yards to extend the drive.

After Justin Tucker had tacked on a field goal to give Baltimore their lead back at 17-14, San Francisco drove into range before the half but Robbie Gould's 51-yard attempt sailed wide to the right.

The Ravens got even by converting a fumble lost by Garoppolo on a sack into a touchdown pass from Jackson to tight end Mark Andrews.

It was also the first time the Ravens trailed since the second quarter of their game at Seattle on October 20. Garoppolo completed his passes at a strong rate (71 percent) before finishing with 165 yards and a 110.2 passer rating. The Ravens might just be the team to beat. But, they also gave up 101 yards on the ground to quarterback Lamar Jackson, primarily because the young linebackers ran the wrong direction or weren't fast enough to chase down Jackson. "And, God willing, we make it to the end and hopefully we go against them again".

In short, the 49ers gifted, and left points on the field. Matt Breida missed his third straight game with an ankle injury.

The 49ers went toe to toe with the hottest team in the league and lost by, well, a toe. Jackson is an electrifying and unstoppable presence and he has led the Ravens (9-2) to seven consecutive wins.
